We bring together world-leading neuroscience research capability and people to galvanise novel solutions for the enormous brain and mental health challenges facing our modern world.
Across our three overarching pillars – Developing Well, Living Well, and Ageing Well – we are working side-by-side with our communities and industry partners to build resilient, healthy brains early in life and to develop tools to promote healthy lifestyles and maintain brain health as we age.
We’re the first in the world to have developed novel interactive technologies designed for young children to train and strengthen cognitive capacity. We’re also expanding into interventions geared towards improving social and emotional wellbeing.
We’re finding novel and exciting new ways of maintaining optimal mental health as the brain faces new triggers and stressors as it moves from adolescence into adulthood.
Maintaining brain health in our older population so they can continue to thrive within their communities is one of the most pressing challenges of the twenty-first century. We aim to be part of the solution.
